Welcome to Singapore's

National Quantum Computing Hub

The National Quantum Computing Hub in Singapore is building capabilities, community, and collaborations to enter the next era of computing. Quantum computers have the potential to outperform today’s supercomputers in speed and energy efficiency because they handle data in wholly new ways. They may also bring a real quantum advantage: solving hard problems in fields from finance to chemistry that today’s supercomputers simply cannot.

Making quantum computing work for Singapore and the world

What we do

Applications

Quantum computers have the potential to offer tremendous improvements in performance for computational problems in chemistry, finance, supply chain management, healthcare, and other fields. The Hub will connect industry partners to researchers with expertise in quantum algorithms, simulation, optimisation and machine learning to pursue practical quantum advantages.

Middleware

Quantum computers need a sophisticated software stack to transform high-level code to physical actions on qubits. The Hub supports an open-source option called Qibo. Hub experts join an international effort to develop Qibo to run on quantum backends and as a simulator.

Hardware

The Hub offers access to commercial cloud quantum computing and local supercomputers. The Hub also has the goal of providing a quantum computer in Singapore.

About us

The National Quantum Computing Hub is a joint initiative of the Centre for Quantum Technologies (CQT) at the National University of Singapore, the Institute of High Performance Computing (IHPC) at the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and the National Supercomputing Centre (NSCC) Singapore.

NQCH is led from the top of its three partner organisations. Staff from the organisations contribute to the hub’s mission across three vertical efforts in hardware, middleware and applications, and horizontal activities of talent, outreach and international collaborations.

Algorithm calculates bond energies for quantum chemistry

A team including researchers from National Quantum Computing Hub partner organisations has designed a new algorithm for quantum chemistry. The algorithm calculates electronic correlation energies in a way that could be implemented on noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) computers.
